Trying to get some additional protein after a long run, but I have no interest in proteing powders that have a list of ingredients longer than my arm- to artifical for me!

 

So, here goes my stab at it:

 

kale

non-fat plain greek yogurt (one small serving size, about 100 calories)

clementine orange

some blueberries, strawberries, grapes

chia seeds (tablespoon)

Fill to max line with water.

 

Thoughts?  Suggestions?  Thanks.

Have you seen this article on how to chose a protein powder? http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/which-protein-powder-best-you
Thanks- had not read that. So, these powders don't have all the chemicals? Do you suggest adding that in addition to what I am doing in terms of the recipe I listed, or in place of something else? thanks.

If you are using greek yogurt in your Blast, you probably don't need additional protein. 6 ounces of greek yogurt can supply about 18g of protein.
If I want to add more- that would work to add the protein powder you suggest to the yogurt? Doesn't kale add protein too?

Yes, the protein powder + the greek yogurt would be a good amount of protein! Kale does have protein, 1 cup chopped has about 2.2 grams of protein.
